Eldoret enumerators yet to receive payment two months after Census exercise

A section of enumerators from Uasin Gishu county held demonstrations on Tuesday, demanding delayed payment two months after the Census drive came to a close.

The enumerators have protested accusing Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) of failing to honour their pledge on prompt payment.

“Where is our money? We are here to have a peaceful protest and demand for our right,” Malika Chepkoech, a university student said.

The bulk of those affected by the delay in payment is the varsity students

Some 165,000 people were contracted for the exercise.

Those hired included 2,647 ICT supervisors, 22, 263 content supervisors and 138, 572 enumerators
